A bit of local news to share with you:

Boston Web Studio: Marc Amos, whom I met through local meetups, has taken the plunge and is now an independent web designer/developer specializing in creating attractive, modern, accessible web sites that appeal to the visitors your business needs to reach. Congrats, Marc! Best of luck with your new venture.

Social Media for Social Change: Michelle Riggen-Ransom (with whom I had a marathon argument at SXSW with about whether altruism exists) has also taken the plunge and started a blog on a topic near and dear to my heart: exploring how technology can promote good in the world. Looking forward to it, Michelle!

By the way, I must say that I think it’s great that Marc and Michelle have stepped out and done that thing they have been thinking about for the longest time. My guess is that there are lots of people who have a company they want to start, a blog they want to write, or some other project they’ve been thinking about but have, for one reason or another, not yet done. I know, I’ve been there myself. But there really is no time like the present, and if something isn’t worth doing right now it’s probably not worth doing at all.

So, just do that thing. No excuses. No regrets. It will lead somewhere interesting. I promise.
